Tesco makes Google Home voice assistant move
Tesco has integrated its online grocery service with the voice-activated Google Home assistant. This enables customers to place orders by issuing commands such as “add milk to my Tesco basket” and “buy more eggs” to the Wi-Fi connected device.
It was developed by Tesco Labs who have created an ‘if this then that’ (IFTTT) recipe, which automatically adds any item to a shopper’s basket. If they already have an online delivery slot booked, the item will also be added to it. Google Home will also learn which items shoppers prefer based on previous orders.
